RACISM IS A SOCIAL EVIL

Racism

The general meaning of term Racism is the feeling and demonstration of a person’s distinction over other peoples. This superiority takes in many different forms like the most prevailing and common one is thinking of white people are better than the black people. Other forms include linguistic chauvinism in many of the countries, and also the discrimination on the basis of creed and cast, these are some types that are commonly observed throughout the world. Racism is an act that is considered as one of the dangerous and biggest social evils.

Individuals have different characteristics and qualities, but it really does not mean that they start thinking themselves better than other peoples. The Holy Prophet (PBUH), in His last sermon address to general people and stressed on zikr or remembrance of One True God ALLAH Almighty, for completion of faith and belief in Ideology of Islam demands first to have complete and strong belief in the Supreme Power of the

ALLAH Almighty. Prophet (PBUH) also talked about the avoiding discrimination among one another. So, there is no need to consider a person’s pre-eminence over the other just because of being white or black and Arab or Non Arab, and vice versa. The only way to become better and superior to others is having Taqwa and strong Faith in ALLAH Almighty.

Before the arrival of Religion of peace Islam, Arabs used to have so many tribal and cultural differences among each other, where some of the tribes and clans considered themselves as superior to other tribes. They had forgotten the true knowledge and actual instructions of the past Prophets and that’s why they trapped in many community problems, and racism was among one of them. Slaves and other tribes peoples were treated worse than animals, and inter ethnic quarrels were also quite common. It was too hard to call them towards harmony and unity. In Islam there is no room for racism as this is one of greatest social evils. The standard of superiority of a person over the others should not be judged and evaluated on other person’s nation, tribe, class, skin colour, property, or language etc but it should be restricted solely to the ability of a person to indulge in committing actions of rectitude. It clearly means that

ALLAH Almighty does not consider how much a person possesses the pleasant and classy appearance or have amount of wealth or money, rather ALAH Almighty only sees our faith or Iman (our devotion towards the Islamic convictions) in our hearts, soul and intentions of our deeds.

There is not any space for racial, cultural, ethnic, national or tribal, discrimination whatsoever. Being a Muslim we should avoid involving in racism and should equally treat all peoples.
